Surveillance Photos Show Teen's Killers
Daniel Pearson, 16, was shot and killed on Nov. 20 on Greenmount Avenue.
The Baltimore police have released stills from video surveillance of the suspected murderers of a 16-year-old boy in hopes of finding the killers.
The grainy photos, released by police, show a group of four people walking across Greenmount Avenue through oncoming traffic, pointing weapons toward the west side of the street at about 8 p.m. on Nov. 20.
Daniel Pearson, 16, was found at the scene and pronounced dead at an area hospital. A 22-year-old man and a 33-year-old man were also wounded in the shooting.
"Homicide detectives are attempting to identify a group of persons of interest who were captured on video surveillance in the area. Anyone with information on the identity of the pictured individuals is asked to contact homicide detectives at 410-396-2100. Callers may remain anonymous," according to a news release.
The Northern District, considered one of the safest in the city, has been rocked by an increase in violent crimes this year.
Maj. Sabrina Tapp-Harper, the district commander, told Patch earlier this month that the spike in violent crime could be attributed to gang violence in the area between the Bloods and Black Guerrilla Family.
Correcrtion: Daniel Pearson was originally identified incorrectly because of wrong information provided by the Baltimore Police Department.
